I stayed at this hotel for a week as part of a Ramblers walking holiday in late October. Unfortunately, the 14 of us in the group were the only people staying at the hotel, apart from one night when there was another small party of cyclists. As a result, it rather lacked atmosphere, which was a shame as the family were friendly and caring and wanted to please. The buffet breakfast was rather boring, usually with ham, and only one variety of cheese (every day the same cheese). Often the pastries on offer were a little dry, and the only occasion when scrambled egg was available, it looked as if it was powdered, it was pale, tasteless and cold. The coffee, from a machine, was weak, lacking flavour and poor for Sicily (Italy). However, the dinners with four or five courses were excellent and copious, and there was always something to please everyone. Most, if not all bedrooms, had a balcony. They were clean, with tiled floors (and it would have been very noisy had there been more guests), and furnished with basic furniture. The beds were a solid as a rock, and did not give much. The hotel has a roof top terrace and a swimming pool. However, the hotel is ideally situated for walking/cycling holidays, situated as it is in the shadow of Mount Etna surrounded by lovely countryside and scenery, and with Catania, Taormina and Syracuse within easy reach, especially for those with their own transport, the area offers something for everyone too.
